Alas, poor Ms. Knowles

New rules in the song category, stating only three nominees can share a nomination, have resulted in Beyoncé being disqualified from contention for "Listen." According to Tom O'Neil, anyway.

I am going to lose no sleep over Beyoncé failing to garner the moniker "Oscar nominee" (and, in all probability, "Oscar winner") yet if she had a substantial role in writing the song...shouldn't she be able to share in the nomination? I realize that the seven nominees for "Accidentally in Love" seemed excessive but there still seems something unfair about this.

Regardless, Ms. Knowles is not headed to the Kodak as a nominee this year so expect Gil Cates to find a way to incite her to come.
